I haven't worked in stone for such a very long while. I can't wait. Besides sculpting in marble I will be sculpting a few relatively large pieces of raw Chalcedony gemstone, one of them 12" x 8" x 6", which I found here in Nova Scotia. Chalcedony becomes a mystically beautiful, translucent blue when polished. And I'm eager for the feel of clay between my fingers again. Who knows...I might even combine chalcedony and bronze in some of my new creations.
